  1. 1. Development of sensitive EPR dosimetry methods

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Author : Håkan Gustafsson; Eva Lund; Anders Lund; Dag Rune Olsen; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electron paramagnetic resonance EPR ; Formic acids; pharmacology; Lithium; Nickel; Radiometry; Rhodium; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi;

    Abstract : Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) dosimetry using the well established dosimeter material alanine is a generally accepted dosimetric method for measurements of high absorbed doses. Alanine EPR dosimetry is however not sensitive enough for high precision measurements of low (< 5 Gy) absorbed doses using reasonably measurement times and small dosimeters. READ MORE

  2. 2. Shear Fracture and Delamination in Packaging Materials A study of Experimental Methods and Simulation Techniques

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Author : Md. Shafiqul Islam; Sharon Kao-Walter; Christian Johansson; Johan Tryding; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Package opening; Shear test specimen; Stress intensity factor; Finite Element simulation; Scanning electron microscopy; Polymers; Interlaminar shear delamination;

    Abstract : Packages are the means of preservation, distribution and convenience of use for food, medicine and other consumer products. Package opening is becoming complicated in many cases because of cutting cost in design and production of opening techniques. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mentally disordered offenders: a longitudinal study of forensic psychiatric assessments and criminal recidivism

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

  4. 4. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Evaluations of Some Side Effects of Orthodontic Treatment

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Henrik Lund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cone beam computed tomography; orthodontics; adolescents; root resorption; marginal bone height;

    Abstract : In the late 1990s a new imaging modality, Cone Beam CT (CBCT) that enables high quality three-dimensional imaging at lower doses than Computed Tomography (CT), was introduced in dento-maxillofacial imaging. In 2005 the Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment (SBU), in a review of scientific articles on Malocclusions and Orthodontic Treatment in a Health Perspective, found low or contradictive evidence for an association between orthodontic treatment and risks for negative side effects.

  5. 5. Hybrid Governance in Practice : Public and Private Actors in the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Emma Lund; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; effectiveness; private actors; multilateral environmental agreements; hybrid governance; global governance; climate regime; UNFCCC; Kyoto Protocol; CDM; Clean Development Mechanism;

    Abstract : It is commonly argued that the private sector needs to become actively involved for society to stand a chance of solving the most pressing global problems. This thesis, consisting of five articles previously published in refereed journals and an introductory essay, studies one case of private actor participation in global environmental governance: the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
